Overview

Sit back, read this book, and enjoy discovering just how much smarter you are than the rest of the fools out there.

  • In the brief lived sport of water baseball, regulations required that infielders stand in the water to their necks, the pitcher up to his waist, and the batter up to his thighs.
  • A Tampa, Florida man handed a bank teller a note demanding cash. The police had no trouble catching up to the bank robber because he wrote the stick-up note on his own paycheck stub, right below where his name and address were printed.
  • In 1982 an Arizona man drove into the desert to take some target practice. He turned his shotgun on one of the legally protected giant saguaros and pumped twice. The blasts cut the cactus in half. It fell on the man and crushed him to death.
  • The post office printed a batch of international stamps in 1999 featuring a picture of the Grand Canyon and this message across the stamp: "Grand Canyon, Colorado." The Grand Canyon is located in Arizona.
  • H.M. Warner, head of Warner Bros. Studio, rejecting a new movie technology in 1927: "Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?"
